Featuring works by Atelier HOKO, As part of Site Unseen
rub rub is Atelier HOKO’s response to the site of 155 Middle Road. The work comprises a series of charcoal rubbings made on and around Objectifs, created over several months. Much like the process of image-making, the technique of rubbing, or frottage, can create visual, indexical impressions. However in rub rub, frottage reveals new ways of looking at ordinary materials, textures and objects, while concealing their original form through abstraction. By introducing these rubbings into the Objectifs store, Atelier HOKO invites viewers to speculate on the origin of these impressions, and by extension, encourage a greater curiosity in the everyday. Read on for a short interview with Atelier HOKO.
